We're All Mad Here Album

Hello, Hello!
I wanted to show you my "We're All Mad Here" Hallowe'en in Wonderland Mini Album. I had so much fun making this book - I was very inspired by the paper, I love the old fashioned look of the paper and the colors... some of the colors are so vibrant while others are so dark and murky, it's such a cool combination!

I also experimented with some techniques, I used Crackle Paint, embossing folders, paper flowers, die cuts, paper layering, Stickles... some techniques I've used frequently, other's are ones that I have a new love for!

 Some of the Graphic 45 papers had different images on them, almost like a collection of postcards.  I really wanted to find a way to utilize the different images because they were all so beautiful, so I cut out what I wanted and put the QK frame around it, but a little kiddi-wampus. 

And last, what would Alice be without the Queen of Hearts?  Just an ordinary little girl in a make believe land.

The book itself is cut from chipboard using pages from the AccuCut machine, which I then covered with solid black paper for simplicity. I find it easier to work on a neutral, cohesive background, it takes some of the guess work out of the picture for me.

Anyways, I hope you like this book. I'm offering this book as a Workshop from my home in Redlands on:
